In part two of the coverage of my trip up to Lynnville, TN, we’re going to cover a very unique aspect of the Colonel Littleton brand.
The thought of a ‘man cave’ in the traditional sense has never really made any sense to me. A big TV, a pool table, and a bar in a basement seems all well and good, but all it really becomes is a slightly worse decorated room than the rest of your house. Man Caves, in this sense, don’t appeal to me at all.
After giving me a tour of the Col. Littleton Private Stock Store, as well as their offices, he walked me across the street to a nondescript garage that had some cars out front. He called this his ‘garage’, but I like to think of hit as the coolest man cave I’ve ever seen. Out front I was greeted by a very cool old Dodge pick up truck, known as the company car:
Inside is like a step back in time. There are so many cool artifacts across the spectrum, it was hard to mentally catalog. Here’s a peek, along with some of my recollection:
A massive old safe and a travel trunk:
The coolest part was that the Colonel knew everything about every piece. Everything. It was like everything had a place in his collection, and was there for a reason.
The space was an old garage, and there were old cars everywhere…all of them are lined up for future projects:
Pure admiration for good craftsmanship. It’s easy to see how this translates to the Colonel Littleton brand.
Leather? Of course there was leather!
Look familiar? Uh huh…
It was such a treat to see this space. It has completely redefined the ‘man cave’ space for me.
